Born in Orlando, Florida, Tucker Albrizzi caught the acting bug at the young age of seven. From his very first audition, Tucker booked a national commercial, going on to book ten more in the following year.
A year later, when Tucker was only eight, his brother, Patrick, was diagnosed with Leukemia. Deciding to take a break from his short lived acting career, the two brothers created their own charity, Driving for Donors. Traveling the US, they held marrow drives that added over 30,000 marrow donors in one year alone. Shortly after, a production company in Hollywood wanted to make a documentary about the brothers’ story. Packing their bags, Tucker and his family came out to Hollywood, where he was able to get back into acting.
Within a short time of arriving in Hollywood, Tucker booked a role on the ABC Pilot, Bless This Mess. Though the show was not successful, Tucker was able to book several roles on many television shows including, NBC’s The Office, USA’s Dark Blue, ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and Desperate Housewives and a reoccurring role on Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush and Disney’s Good Luck Charlie.
With his great talent and timing for comedy, Tucker’s been called a young Jonah Hill or Jack Black. This talent has allowed him to make a jump to the big screen this past year in several feature films. These include: Universal’s Hop, Disney’s Spooky Buddies, and 20th Century Fox’s upcoming holiday film Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, which hits theaters nationwide December 16th. Next look for Tucker lending his voice for a lead role in Focus Features animated film, ParaNorman, due out in summer 2012.
Whether he’s playing a serious role, or getting laughs, Tucker has the ability to capture the hearts of anyone watching.
Tucker currently resides in Los Angeles and Florida with his family. When he’s not acting, Tucker loves playing video games, go horseback riding, swimming and spending time with his family and friends.
